From award-winning author Oein DeBhairduin, Twiggy Woman is a collection of ghost stories rooted in the oral tradition of the Irish Traveller community.

Like a flickering lamp, these eerie tales illuminate the threads between our mundane outer lives and the mysterious, wild and spooky visions of our inner worlds. With his lyrical prose and rich perspective, Oein guides us into the darker corners of the mind, always with the comfort of knowing that we won’t be left there. Featuring chilling black and white illustrations by celebrated artist Helena Grimes.

‘Good horror is felt in the body, and this gorgeous collection of stories sends a very welcome chill down my spine. Haunting and heartfelt, grounded in captivating tradition, and delivered with a graceful and lyrical warmth, Twiggy Woman is a deliciously creepy read.’ – Dave Rudden.
